Safety information 



About Photosensitive Seizures 

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual 
images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who 
have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause 
these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching video games. 

These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye 
or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary 
loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead 
to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects. 

Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. 
Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms — children and 
teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. 

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther from the 
television screen, using a smaller television screen, playing in a well-lit room, and not playing 
when you are drowsy or fatigued. 

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor 
before playing. 

Other Important Health and Safety Information The Xbox Instruction Manual contains 
important health and safety information that you should read and understand before using 
this software. 

Avoid Damage to Your Television 

Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially front- or rear-projection 
types, can be damaged if any video games, including Xbox games, are played on them. Static 
images presented during the normal course of gameplay may "burn in" to the screen, causing 
a permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all times, even when video games are not 
being played. Similar damage may occur from static images created when placing a video game 
on hold or pause. Consult your television owner's manual to determine if video games can 
be played safely on your set. If you are unable to find this information in the owner's manual, 
contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine if video games can be played 
safely on your set.

prologue 

First War of Heroes — Xok's Knights 

Legend holds that when war threatens Bersia with destruction, seven 
knights will appear to bring salvation. 

The legend came true when the mysterious Khiliani, leader of the Dark 
Legion, took the eastern Hexter of Bersia in his campaign to destroy 
the world. Seven heroes rose up against Khiliani to rally for humanity 
and defend Bersia. 

The battle turned when a fallen hero, Rick Miner, was resurrected 
through the immortal power of the Ancient Heart. Together with the 
rest of Xok's Knights, he defeated Khiliani at the Altar of Destruction. 

This was the First War of Heroes, now known as "Xok's Knights." 

Second War of Heroes 

Rumors linger long after the end of the Second War of Heroes. What 
transpired between Neeble and the Ancient Heart? Did all of the 
war's participants truly vanish? 

Mists. Legends. Echoes of good and evil. No clear record of this 
war remains. Nevertheless, the site of its final battle — the Altar of 
Destruction — now is considered holy ground. 

An Uncertain Time of Peace 

Fifty years have passed since the Second War of Heroes. The 
legendary artifact that caused the Great War, the Ancient Heart, is a 
faint memory. The Altar of Destruction lies in ruins, and none who 
lived through the final battle remain. 

Children no longer listen to the battle songs of hope and death from 
an old man who says he was there. The adventures of the Ancient 
Heart and Neeble, the tales of Xok's Knights — doesn't anyone want 
to hear their stories? 

Were they just stories? 



And so, a peace crept into this world as a long winter changes subtly 
to spring. Why not? With the Dark Legion diminished, Humanity rose 
in power. 

No one believed the disaster of 50 years ago could ever happen 
again. There was no sign of war, and East and West Bersia have 
become allies. 

But, to some, it seems like a sunny sky slowly filling with clouds, 
peaceful and bright. Maybe you wonder whether the clouds might 
hold a passing shower or even a rainstorm? 

You also might feel, however, that the answer to a question you dare 
not ask draws near. Will the Dark Legion rise again? History has a 
tendency of repeating itself... 

Your Mission 

The Dark Legion has massacred a group of villagers living near a 
former battleground, which since has become sacred land. The short- 
lived peace in the world is over, and the Humans and the Dark Legion 
are now at war. 

Choose which race you would like to play, and select one of several 
character types within each race. From here on out, it's all about 
war. You start out with one infantry unit, but you can acquire more 
forces or develop them into more specialized and powerful units. Take 
center stage in epic battles — hear the cries of soldiers, and see the 
chaos of the fight. Command elite cavalry and infantry units of up to 
1,000 soldiers. 

After the battle, use the world map to designate where your troops 
go next. While moving across the continent, you can visit castles, gain 
endorsements from feudal lords, hire mercenaries, replenish your 
troops, or change equipment. 

The time has come to fight. Which side will you choose? 



Characters 

I6uman Alliance 




Gerald 

Hero 

Main Skill: Melee 

Main Weapon: One-Handed Sword 

Six years ago, Gerald joined the 
Hironeiden Army as a mere soldier. 
Two years ago, showing exceptional 
valor during the Hexter invasion, he 
was promoted to Captain of the entire 
Eastern Defense Force. 

Clever and quick-witted, he confounds 
his enemies with unconventional, yet 
efficient, tactics. 

Gerald excels at analyzing a situation 
accurately and values skill over rank 
or bloodline. 



Kendal 

Hero 

Main Skill: Melee 

Main Weapons: Spear and Hammer 

A General of the Second Division 
Ecclecian Holy Knights, Kendal was born 
in Azilla, a tributary of Ecclesia. He now 
defends the Holy Ground against the 
Dark Legion. 

As an Azillan, he must maintain strict 
faith in God. He has issues with this 
assignment of defending the Holy 
Ground, but his honor prevents him 
from objecting. 

A champion for his cause, as well as a 
precise tactician, Kendal can lead his 
troops to greatness. 




Rupert 

Officer 

Main Skill: Melee 

Main Weapon: Two-Handed War 

Hammer 

A close ally of Gerald, Rupert 
has been through countless ups 
and downs since they joined the 
army together. 

His huge body and enormous 
power enable him to wield the 
50-pound hammer while 
assisting Gerald. 

He puts on a rough exterior, but 

his sarcasm and frequent jokes with Ellen mask the affection he really 

feels for her. 





Ellen 

Officer 

Main Skill: Melee 
Main Weapons: Bow 

About two years ago, Ellen appeared from 
nowhere to join Gerald's army. 

It might seem odd to find such a beautiful 
woman among the rough and crude 
soldiers of Hironeiden. But, be warned — 
that pretty face holds a quick and 
foul tongue. 

Should you attempt to get too friendly 
even after enduring the curses, insults, 
and abuse, her quick and deadly sword will 
make certain you mind your manners. 




Duane 

Officer, Knight 

Main Skill: Melee 

Main Weapon: Morning Star 

Duane is a knight from the honorable, but 
fallen house of Ecclesia Colonok. 

He volunteered to join the defense force of the 
Holy Ground to re-establish the honor of his 
house's name. 

For this reason, Duane continuously works to 
distinguish himself through extreme feats of 
bravery and skill on the battlefield. 



Thomas 

Officer 

Main Skills: Melee, Magic 
Main Weapon: Flail 

Thomas is Kendal's friend. He is also the son of 
Walter who asked Kendal to drag Thomas along 
so he can learn the ways of battle. 




Dark £egion 

Lucretia 

Hero 

Main Skill: Melee 
Main Weapon: Rapier 

Lucretia is a Dark Elf and a Captain in the 
Vellond troop. Her mission is to investigate 
why Regnier invaded the villages near 
the Holy Ground, while simultaneously 
providing aid to his troops. 

A bit short-tempered and prone to 
hysterical outbursts, Lucretia prefers quick 
and effective assaults over long, drawn- 
out battles. 

Lucretia, who considers the Dark Elves the most prestigious race of 
all, hates Morene because she is half-Vampire. 





Regnier 

Hero 

Main Skill: Melee 

Main Weapons: Two-Handed 

Giant Sword 

About two years ago, the 
mysterious and brutal Lord 
of Hexter, Regnier, appeared 
from nowhere to aid Valdemar 
in crushing the rebellions. 
Compared to Humans, he 
has monstrous strength. The 
Ores and Ogres who recognize 
his terrible, overwhelming 
power serve him with total and 
absolute loyalty. 




Cirith 

Officer 

Main Skills: Melee, Magic 

Main Weapon: One-Handed Sword 

Self-centered and pretty, Cirith takes a 
somewhat air-headed pride in her heritage 
as a Dark Elf. She plays the part of Lucretia's 
butt-kissing lackey, but her true intention is 
to spy on Rithrin. 




Morene Strident 

Officer 

Main Skill: Melee 
Main Weapon: Iron 
Chain 

A cold-hearted beauty 
who is despised 
by Lucretia for her 
overwhelming good looks 
and her heritage as a 
half-Vampire, Morene 
works as a supervisor just 
like Leinhart. 

Morene's lovely face 

hides a cruel and unfeeling heart. She sheds no tears over the pain or 

death of others, especially those who suffer at her hands. 



10 




Urukubarr 

Officer 

Main Skill: Melee 
Main Weapon: Bare 
Hand 

Simple-minded 
Urukubarr the Ogre 
was once Chief of 
Gorzanik, the most 
powerful of all Orc- 
Ogre tribes. He now 
defends the land 
of Hexter. 

Recognizing 

Regnier's overwhelming power, Urukubarr pledged his allegiance to 

Regnier on the condition that Regnier rule Hexter. 

Urukubarr will serve Regnier with absolute loyalty — even unto death. 




Leinhart 

Officer 

Main Skill: Melee 

Main Weapon: One-Handed 

Sword 

Sent by Vellond to watch over 
Regnier. Leinhart was mesmerized 
by Regnier's power and charisma 
and now works covertly as his 
right arm. 

Although supervisors typically 
get reassigned to new areas every 
year, Leinhart remains in place 
because of King Valdemar's trust 
of Regnier.

Ecclesia 

The current patriarch of 

Ecclesia is Dimitri the Third, 

whose religious ideology 

dictates the "Extermination 

of unconvertible barbarians 

and unification of Bersian 

Continent under one faith." 

Dimitri had taken over Azilla 

as a tributary nation while 

Azilla was in chaos over the 

king's throne. He considers 

the Ancient Heart to be a 

devil's artifact and will excommunicate anyone who speaks of or 

attempts to learn about it 

Azilla 

Azilla fell into chaos after King Curian disappeared following the 
Second War of Heroes. Azilla was annexed by Ecclesia years later. Its 
current king, Angelo, is merely a figurehead controlled by Dimitri the 
Third. 

Hironeiden 

Hironeiden currently is ruled by King Saul. Though this nation 
generally follows the principles of the Ecclesian church, the constant 
conflict with the Dark Legion has created some doctrinal deviations. 
In general, the people of Hironeiden consider the Ecclesians a bunch 
of religious idealists who don't need to fight for their survival. 



«*» 



Vellond 

Vellond's current king, Valdemar, is a half-Vampire just like Richter. 
He somehow managed to unify the ever-conflicting nations of Dark 
Elves, Ores, and Ogres. But, it's an uneasy unity. The Dark Elves seek 
an opportunity to replace the half-Vampire king, who in their opinion 
belongs to an inferior race. To prevent this, Valdemar has placed half- 
Vampire supervisors to watch over the Dark Elves. 

Hexter 

Hexter is a commonwealth of Vellond, ruled by Regnier, whose 
primary residents are Ores and Ogres. Some wonder why Regnier 
doesn't try to overthrow Valdermar, as he has ability to defeat Ores 
and Ogres. Regnier remains open to this idea, but for now he has 
Valdemar's courtesy and trust.

Basic Battle System 

Battles start automatically when the distance between your troops and 
enemy troops narrows. During battle, a troop's Hit Points decrease 
at a specific rate — and the type of units involved affects the rate of 
attack and damage sustained. Make sure to consider how the unit 
types match up against each other for effective battle. 

The Hero's Troop 

As the Hero's troop does melee battle with its enemies, it changes 
to Hero Battle Mode. At this point, you can control the Hero 
directly and fight against other enemy units. Now, the Hero isn't 
superhuman, but this does provide a significant advantage. Try to 
attack the enemy troop leader first — if you kill him, it wipes out the 
entire enemy troop. 

Calling For Support 

While engaged in battle, a troop cannot use any spells or abilities. In 
particularly dangerous situations, you can tell the Hero to get help 
from his Officers by pushing © + ©/© + O. 

At the Base/Castle 

You will visit the base/castle frequently throughout the story. This is 
where you can obtain game information, manage your troops, and 
learn about key story events. Press © to see Help messages anywhere 
in the base/castle. 

As the game 
progresses, you will 
have the opportunity 
to visit many other 
bases/castles. 




When in the base/ 

castle, you can see 

how the main story 

progresses by visiting an operation room.

You can learn basic information about the game at the training center. 
Check out the Tutorials to learn about movements and tactics. You 
also can press © anywhere to access a detailed Help message.

your troops at 

the Barracks by

23 



£eader 

The Leader is an extremely important role in the game. The growth 
of the Leader can decide the growth of the troop. The greater the 
Leader, the more powerful his troops. 

If the Leader's Hit Points falls to zero, not only does the Leader die, 
but it also means the troop's complete destruction. The only troop 
unit member that can kill the Leader is the Hero. 

When you play as the Leader, however, a Hit Points value 
i of zero doesn't destroy your troop. It merely 
f disadvantages you as you're unable to control your 
troop for a limited amount of time and your troop 
will not get any attack bonuses during that time. 

Growing and Strengthening the Leader 

you complete each stage of the game, you 
automatically acquire experience and war funds 
that you can spend at the Barracks on the 
main base. 

By purchasing weapons, armor, and 
accessories, you strengthen your 
Leader. Note: When purchasing 
equipment, you must already have 
attained the required skill levels. 




Officer 

An Officer supports the Hero during battle and the troop's defense 
rate. [The Adjutant General influences the mastery of element 
skill attacks.] 

Using the Officer Effectively 

When the Hero requests help from an Officer for a battle, they attack 
either the enemy immediately around the Hero or those whom the 
Hero is attacking currently. 

Officers have two types of attack: physical attack and magical 
attack. Each attack type differs in the units affected and the damage 
produced. Therefore, make sure and call in the type of attack and 
support appropriate to the situation. 

Officers and Troop Abilities 

The skill mastery of the Officer doesn't influence the ability of the 
troop. The troop's ability is influenced by equipment, elemental 
attacks, and resistance. 

Growing and Strengthening Officers 

Just as with Heroes, you can buy equipment and get skill training 
for Officers at the Barracks. By increasing an Officer's special-skill 
mastery, you can increase the Officer's attack rate in that skill. (You 
can learn about each special skill on the list entitled "Special Ability" 
at the Barracks.] 

Special Ability 

After training to master a certain skill, the Officer can learn a magical 
skill and an extra special skill. 



25 



(Troops 

All actions on the battlefield revolve around troops. The number 
of soldiers in the troop depends on the job to which that troop is 
assigned. The level of the troop depends on the level of its Hero or 
Leader. When the skill of the troop reaches a certain level, you can 
change its job. Job-change requirements are listed at the Barracks. 
Note: The Hero's troop can only change into melee-related jobs. 

Things That Affect Troop Status 

As the Hero's level affects a troop's status, so do the following:

Unite 
Human 







Archer 

The Archer is a basic range-attack unit for Human 
side. Aside from its normal arrow attack, fire-related 
attacks can be performed using fire arrows. An Archer 
can change into a Longbowman and Mortar. 



Cavalry 

A Cavalry is a unit to fear when you meet 
it head on. If the enemy doesn't have a 
ranged-attack unit on their side, consider 
the battle done. 



Sapper 

A Sapper has various special abilities, such as 
setting traps and fires. Although its melee strength 
is next to nothing, its strategic importance is the 
best among all troops. 



Paladin 

The Paladin is a unit with a perfect 
balance between melee attack and healing 
ability. The importance of this unit 
increases even more in later missions. 



Storm Rider 

Aerial units cannot be controlled directly but, 
when called on for support to a desired area, they 
will attack automatically. The Storm Rider is great 
against enemy aerial units, but vulnerable against 
ranged-attack units. 



27 



Dark Legion 




Cavalry Archer 

This unit is unique to the Dark Elves. It can 
move and attack simultaneously with great 
speed. 



Ore-Ghoul 

This unit is unique to Ores and 
Undeads. Aside from its melee 
attacks, the self-destruct attack can be 
devastating against enemy troops. 



Scorpion 

This huge Scorpion is trained to be a siege 
weapon. It is effective against enemy infantries 
but very weak against any fire attacks. 



Swamp-Mammoth 

This is considered as the ultimate ground 
unit among the Humans and the Dark 
Legion combined. One step forward 
could mean certain death for a group of 
infantries. 



Black Wyvern 

The Black Wyvern is the Dark Legion's 
counterpart of the Human's Storm Rider. It 
spews out poisonous gases to attack enemies 
and has slightly better ground attack ability 
than the Storm Rider. 



2S 



Skills 

Every unit gets one skill as a default, and up to four skills can be 
learned. Skills can be increased by spending Experience Points. 

Skills are divided into two groups: Officer skills and troop skills. 

• Officers have different skills which they bring into play when called 
on to help. The greater the melee skill of the Officer, the greater 
the damage they inflict. 

• Troop skills are more diversified compared to Officers. Almost 
every skill can be learned and used if the troop meets the job and 
level requirements. Troop skills include Scout, Cure, Lightning, as 
well as others. 




Equipment 

Equipment categories include 

weapons, armors, and accessories. Your 

Hero and troop must reach certain levels 

for different items, as each item has equipment 

limitations. In general, avoid equipping with overly powerful items. 

Items offer the most bonus if the level of item and the level of the 

Hero and the troop are the same.
